Description

Yates Mill Elementary School follows a traditional calendar and is an enriching school community where the focus of the staff and administration is on setting high standards for student achievement. The staff collaborates to build safe and supportive relationships with the students, classrooms are interactive with technology and hands-on activities, and the students and teachers are actively involved in the learning process. The administration is actively involved in all aspects of the school community, visible, and supportive of students, teachers, and parents.

The staff collaborates weekly in Professional Learning Teams to design instruction and assessments covering the curriculum goals as outlined in Common Core and NC Essential Standards. Grade level teachers along with the AIG teacher, Intervention teachers, and Instructional Coaches are constantly assessing students' needs to better serve each child through the use of flexible grouping in math and reading called Team Time. Students participate in grade level Team Time 5 days a week where they work in small groups based on their specific needs. These opportunities for all students allow them to take part in uninterrupted core instruction daily as well as grow as learners in their specific, identified areas.

Through the PTA's Parent Advocacy Committee, parent and community volunteers provide tutoring, serve as media volunteers, support teachers in their classrooms and organize special activities throughout the school year.

Learning extends outside of the classroom walls by offering additional environmental education through six campus zones. The school having been built on the Swift Creek watershed provides unique, hands-on environmental instruction right on the school campus. At least twice a year, the school staff hosts Zone Days for students and their families where they work together to enhance and beautify the school campus.

All components together make Yates Mill Elementary a well-balanced school community.

Curriculum: Traditional

Traditional curriculum schools offer students high quality instruction, opportunities for advanced studies, creative exploration and extra-curricular activities in a nurturing educational setting. Some of the highest-performing schools in Wake County are traditional curriculum schools.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Broughton Transportation Office.
